Golisano Autism Center,
Happiness House provides on-site respite services one Saturday per month from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Children ages three and up are eligible to attend. Parents supply a lunch and the child is offered activities and peer interactions. Children do not have to stay the full four hours but may do so. Staff engage the children in fun activities so that parents can have a break from their care.
Happiness House also offers individual respite services to children enrolled in the HCBS Waiver program who live in a home with at least one family member or caregiver. A skilled respite provider can come to the home and provide one-to-one care for the individual while their family/caregiver takes a break. This service can be provided in the home or out in the community. The provider will work with the individual at least once every 2 weeks for a minimum of 2 hours.
